Startup

At startup each TV launches the last channel from the last TV on in the house. How do I get each TV to launch the last channel viewed on that particular TV. I am using Gemini boxes

The last channel watched by the account holder is the default channel loaded regardless of the device.

How is the "account holder" determined. All our TVs are simply controlled by their individual remote. How doe the system determine the account holder?

Thanks

The account holder is the subscriber of the service. There are no profiles with the system. So when you install the app, the account holder (subscriber) logs into the app.

I am perfectly aware that there is no hope for this happening . That would mean DTV would have to offer what all other competition offer. That is individual control of the boxes or apps in the same household, were it is possible for individuals in the same household to have sub individual accounts as far as recordings and favorites go.

User Profiles allowed.

YTTV 6

HULU 7

Fubo tv 8

Sling 4

 I just keep my fingers crossed they will step up.
